Someone with no education experience

Is poised to lead the sixth largest higher education system in the country.  Hmmmm.

Morgan comes to the Tennessee Board of Regents as a relative outsider, after three decades of working in government, not academia.

But he sees his years at the head of the state's fiscal watchdog agency as an asset as he prepares to take over a higher education system hit hard by budget cuts and about to take on a long campaign to pull up Tennessee's dismal college graduation rate.

"I'm certain we can get these institutions to think about what we can do to ensure these students are successful," said Morgan, who would be taking over the system that governs six universities and every public community college and technology training center in the state, home to more than 200,000 students.
